a russian bank. later this hour turning off the tap. moscow cutting off gas to ukraine after the two parties couldn't agree on how much give should pay for supply details still to go. but first fighters with the extremist islamic state of iraq and syria known as isis are sweeping through iraq as they try to carve out an islamic caliphate for themselves they reportedly seized vast territories of north and west iraq and are now in control of several border crossings with syria and jordan it's proper to washington to send in three hundred military advisors to help the nation from plummeting into chaos isis has a reputation for brutality to the point that even al-qaeda has distanced itself from the group one example of these pictures of captive iraqi soldiers being a whore herded together before being summarily shot isis is advance was swift and deadly reportedly capturing three cities on sunday this map you can see the two routes where the terrorists have chosen to take to their eventual target baghdad
9:08 pm
iraqi troops have put up little resistance so far fleeing in the face of the extremist onslaught are reports. fifteen thousand fighters ten thousand operations in iraq one thousand assassinations and all last year alone the state of iraq and syria now known more notoriously as isis has been slicing through iraq moving closer and closer to baghdad and they're running a slick modern p.r. campaign to even publishing an official report of their activities using computer generated graphics it paints a clear picture of the terror organization including the types and amounts of weapons they use their strategy details of operations and targets and former intelligence officers claim it produces its press releases like a giant corporation trying to create an image of a world structured disciplined and effective organization or to attract funding but their actions speak loudly too as isis fighters have almost to reach the iraqi
9:09 pm
capital killing scores of people along the way in just around seven days while during the u.s. led invasion of the country it took the allied forces twenty two days to reach baghdad the alternate goal of isis is to create a new islamic state emerging parts of iraq and syria into one now it's believed that the movement grew out of al qaeda in iraq emerging from the cast of the two thousand and three invasion today it has fifteen thousand fighters most of whom are thought to be from neighboring middle eastern countries but around two thousand are believed to have come from europe including britain isis has also become known for extreme brutality including widespread beheadings and crucifixions most of its funding is traced to southeast asia particularly indonesia the country with the biggest muslim population on earth and would following the arrest of high profile jihad as the it said extremists are now turning their attention to the conflicts in iraq and syria. geodes extreme message has spread beyond iraq and syria
9:10 pm
intelligence analysts figure around three thousand foreigners have signed up to fight with isis so far and u.k. foreign secretary says four hundred of them are thought to be british chris bambery from the international socialist group thinks isis led terror campaign is sending shock waves across the region wonder they were brutalized secondly of course as well they're well used to social media and terms of projects in themselves but the fact that in addition to the view you know talking about the approach they know which way the executions and seeing of killed the shia dold you know that is going to by far in terms of across the region as i say in the neighboring governments all road will be very nervous about what is happening you know only very keen whatever the past the fences will be up to the maliki government to buttress the maliki government against this against isis because he's going to lead to repercussions potentially for talking for iran and every other country in the region more of the week's news still to come including spain's cautious coronation this really pay the

six the protests across the country show how austerity has left spaniards mulling over the whether the monarchy is worth keeping this and more after a short break. his name was good because he was nazi germany's minister of propaganda in the midst that he created exist to this day. you can google is propaganda it was supposed actually trying to denigrate other nations while at the same time raising ordinary german self-esteem and. keep its uses go bill sniff precisely what the masses need to hear in order to make them follow him he was like the kite paper from the fairy tale to to me. it's folder that you know this by. the myths created by the chief nazi ideologist bound for
9:12 pm
town still in the west we have to fight these myths today in memory of those who won in the second world war. thirteen minutes past the hour israeli defense forces raided artes office in the west bank destroying equipment and confiscating records as part of a series of similar idea for aids on media centers amid a military campaign against the palestinian authorities whom israel accuses of kidnapping three israeli students or his pulse leader has more. artie's offices that are situated in the building of the service provided pile media in the west bank city of ramallah have been raided in that raid r.t. studio was damaged our internet signal was lost the archives of both video and material have disappeared and at the same time all furniture has been destroyed now
9:13 pm
the doors have been wound computers and disks have been confiscated all of this has resulted in a conversation between us and the i.d.f. where we are asked them what was all of this about now they responded initially by saying nothing the raid was against the al aqsa channel and now we've been pointed out that that was actually housed in another building to which the idea for sponsored a well in that case the raid was against could stevie our follow up question then was so why have you confiscated r t arabic equipment which the i.d.f. responded that they had to since the operation targeted the whole complex now these confiscations form part of what is being called operation brothers keeper it is an operation that is intended to risk you three israeli teenagers who were kidnapped some ten days ago by him us the dip he hid of r.t. arabic has said that the i.d.f. never acts without any kind of documentation that proves that whoever it is raiding is in fact affiliated with terrorists but when he asked where there was proof that
9:14 pm
r.t. in fact was affiliated with any party that proof was very short in coming i can tell him now where is the intelligence that you've got to prove that r.t. was somehow or related to any political movement the i.d.f. has said that if after the examination of the disks any quit meant that it has confiscated it is clear that there is no terror related content in the equipment will be returned to r.t. arabic. israeli troops have shot dead two palestinians bringing the number of deaths to four since the beginning of a crackdown on hamas this week also saw three hundred palestinian suspects arrested in connection with the students abductions gideon levy a reporter for israel's hauritz newspaper thinks the idea of stop aeration has gone beyond its stated aim of fighting the missing teens i seeing that the super ration went out of propulsion long time ago and zero fees the radio in your office is just
9:15 pm
an example ofa very very wide scale operation which has nothing to do was the fate of this three kidnapped youngsters as israel takes advantage in seraing in the strike again no the first time to smash the hamas and any see which smith is hamas or looks like hamas always connected directly or indirectly was come as ease becoming a victim brute searching and confiscating it's even your own feces one of those victims after refusing to pay its energy bills for six months kiev's natural gas was turned off this week take a look at how things got to this point ukraine currently owes russia more than four billion dollars after stopping payments in november what russia wanted when it said its final deadline was at least half of that ukraine's problem seemed to be the price russia wanted to set he have happy neither with the current price nor the one offered by moscow in fact insist on a price that it calls
9:16 pm
a market one but which would also be one of the lowest in europe looking at pay only half of what some european nations pay even the e.u. is called russia's final offer of three hundred eighty five dollars per thousand cubic meters are reasonable one not so for ukraine which has refused to budge on the amount we sought opinion from several analysts. who. could stand on their hands and the wooden nickels till the cows come home and it wouldn't change the situation and i think the negotiating tactics the ukrainian government. are simply designed to make someone crazy in moscow you appear to compromise you be reasonable and suddenly everything collapses this isn't going to help ordinary ukrainian people it's creating enormous economic instability and. a deal which is to step towards normalization of relations with russia which of course is ukraine's by far the largest trading partner so really a deal is in the new ukrainian
9:17 pm
a people's interest and i don't really understand why else gone through what happens now is that russia makes the choice and it's not the choice between you know more losing more money or being the bad guy switch off the gas go to a prepaid system in somebody is respected much more than in this starting to do that the automobile as of this week the only gas russia sitting through ukrainian pipes is that which has been bought by europe but given past experience the e.u. is still nervous in two thousand and six moscow cut gas supplies to europe it made claims ukraine was siphoning off amounts of pipes through the country taps were later turned back on there was also a so-called gas war three years later when ukrainian supplies were reduced and it began taking more gas in slovakia a state of emergency was introduced in bulgaria a number of factories were closed public services were also badly affected russia pledges to keep the e.u.'s gas flowing despite differences with ukraine kiev's ability to guarantee transit is already in doubt
9:18 pm
a day after the gas was cut off an explosion to hit a segment of the pipeline to europe this is video footage of the incident ukraine's interior ministry says the explosion was likely to have a result of a terror attack fortunately the blast happened in a secluded area away from any population centers for now all fuel has been switched to a reserve pipeline and europe is still getting its gas. in the fall political scientist material things at the very least explosion is a blow to the country's reputation if you look at the country it's not no more a state it's rather a kind of failed state which does the control it's just on able to guarantee not only the lives of it's on the citizens about also all the economic safety and that. and that physical same skills. business going on there so this is one of the very many examples. a website is a special section dedicated to the ukraine crisis with archives if you're in the

9:20 pm
a king but without a political role we do not expect. phillipa oil actually arafat and he of the boy family we need to understand that that we as we talk that's their funk god knows he's a king that has constantly denying that the spanish has been imposing catalonia only one and now a majority that's not only are these two vaulted the night of november about didn't happen that's a that's not only out here for a minute enemy for others this week marks two years of voluntary limbo for weekly julian a songe holed up in the ecuadorian embassy in london but he shows no sign of giving up and continues his fight for freedom of the press. being the president conducted it because you are but a good journalist of the fall for the. previous president somebody
9:21 pm
this is what he said during a conference call on his confinement anniversary also calling on the u.s. attorney general to drop the ongoing wiki leaks investigation but despite the worldwide which are for whistleblowers a songe still has an army of supporters you can count on his lawyer jennifer robinson says the group's founder or remain holed up in the embassy for as long as there is a threat of extradition to the u.s. . unless there is significant political will exercised by the united kingdom's leaving the united states as we said we are seeking insurance and the closure of the criminal investigation to economics in the united states the before he feels comfortable to be able to travel to sweden to answer those allegations in the meantime of course he has continued to offer though he's testimony immolation to sweden would very much like to see that investigation greste their responsibility that if they went into the heaney embassy they could be prosecuted could decide to jump the case given the strength of his evidence and we would like to see them at least investigate and progress that as an option otherwise of course he's more than
9:22 pm
willing to answer the questions and we'd like to see insurance that he won't be sent on once the united states that assurance is not being provided so unless and until that comes he will reins on the ins in the us army readying to leave afghanistan and most of its soldiers in gear will be out of the country by the end of the year is art he's a marine a port i reports the government has plans for the military paraphernalia that will be shipped back to u.s. soil. well as america continues winding down its longest streak of war soldiers are returning home and so is their military arsenal a used armored vehicle that will be used during swat calls and other emergency situations nine foot tall mine resistant trucks specifically designed to survive roadside bomb attacks are parked all throughout the u.s. local and state police departments have acquired more than four hundred m. wraps and silencers and tens of thousands of m. sixteen machine guns and night vision equipment the new paradigm is it's the military paradigm militarized police and the problem with that is when they look at
9:23 pm
american citizens often they see enemy combatants this is all made possible through america's military transfer program created in the ninety's when violence and drug gangs plagued major cities today crime in the u.s. has fallen to its lowest in a generation and the special response team in richland county south carolina looks like this ready to take on the taliban should it invade the south iraq war veteran emily yates says her country's law enforcement is being trained to fight against the public instead of serving to protect it they should be trained to deescalate any violence or gresham that's happening but instead the police are showing up and causing violence and aggression people are just afraid all the time and for no reason our country has never been invaded we have no foreign armies at our doorstep however a sheriff in indiana claims his county needs m. wraps to protect against possible attacks by veterans returning from home i see
9:24 pm
a lot of paranoia about veterans i don't like it usually excuse to arm police like their enemy you know like the people of afghanistan that we got a problem using that as a way to militarize the police for whatever they think might be coming in the future a future where america's local police forces will be prepared for war but who. will they be warring against marina r.t. . take a look at some other stories making global headlines ethnic albanians clashed with security forces in kosovo leaving six police officers and ten civilians wounded violence breaking out in the northern city of metre of it so with several hundred albanians who are rolling rocks and burning cars they were angry at serb plans to build a so-called peace park in the city five people arrested after police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters. israel says it's carried out air strikes on nine targets in syria including a military headquarters this in response to

9:26 pm
our position if they don't recognize government as long as it controls territory. looking back we can say former see former secretary of state clinton. close cozying up to then president in key muslim brotherhood member mohamed morsi later ousted by the army and put on trial the current secretary of state kerry also giving strong words of support to morsi at that same time very similar to the words that he has just given in meetings with the egyptian president sisi. up next a story of a nazi kingpin whose media manipulation hypnotized a nation stay with us. what about washington getting tougher on its allies like saudi arabia because it's no secret that saudi money was a crucial factor in the rise of the extremist can bomb or to take on the united
9:27 pm
states dragged their feet they did declare early on in the uprising that al qaida was a terrorist organization and about the mossad and others were terrorist organizations and proscribed but it did very little to carry through with that and to force its allies to equally prescribe those groups. to scramble to save iraq as the baghdad government loses control over much of the country washington is calling for changes in the regime all the while the region's borders are set to be redrawn. metula european views on any for all what they're going to do but you israelis think the european union's and they don't listen to i'm sure they're a nuisance to who what will we do i mean if the european union. well can you do
